Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Do I need a referral from my
doctor to receive physical therapy?
A. No, in the State of Ohio, you do
NOT need a physician referral to receive physical therapy services
and the majority of health insurers cover the services without a
referral. We recommend you contact your insurance company to see if
a referral is required for payment. After we receive your insurance
information on your first visit, we will also contact your
insurance company and verify coverage. In addition, keep in mind
that if you do have a physician referral, you do have a choice to
receive therapy at whatever facility you choose.
Q. My doctor recommended another
place for rehabilitation, but I would like to stay closer to home.
What should I do?
A. Let your doctor know that you
would like to receive your treatment at Hardin Rehabilitation and
Wellness Center. You do have the right to choose where you receive
your treatment. Remember, the referral from your doctor may be used
at ANY physical therapy location you desire, not only the one your
Q. I'm already in pain. Will
physical therapy hurt more?
A. Please understand that pain is a
symptom of an underlying problem. While alleviating your pain is
one of the goals for treatment, our main objective is to address
the underlying problem(s) that are causing the pain. As a result,
you may have an increase and/or decrease throughout your treatment
before it is finally controlled. So please do not let the pain
level be the reason for missing appointments. Make sure you speak
with your therapists about this.
Q. How should I dress?
A. You should wear loose fitting
clothing so you can expose the area that we will be evaluating and
treating. For example, if you have a knee problem, it is best to
wear shorts. For a shoulder problem, a tank top is a good choice,
and for low back problems, wear a loose fitting shirt and pants so
that we can perform a thorough examination.
Q. How long will each treatment
A. Treatment sessions typically last
45 to 60 minutes per visit.
Q. How many visits will I need?
A. It depends on your diagnosis, the
severity of your impairments, your past medical history, etc. You
will be re-evaluated on a regular basis with a progress report with
